Catalyst Content Preview
The College of St. Scholastica hosts this free public event for anyone interested in learning more about the Catalyst Content Festival. St. Scholastica is the educational partner of the festival, which is coming to Duluth Oct. 9-13.
The preview event will feature a presentation from Catalyst Executive Director Philip Gilpin, Jr., who will talk about the festival. It will also offer the first public preview of the Midwest Production Guide, a listing of regional businesses that provide services necessary for the television industry. Students and locals can list themselves in the guide for free through the Catalyst website, catalystcontent.org.
The 14th annual festival will be held for the first time in Duluth from Oct. 9-13. It will bring more than 100 television executives and agents, along with more than 1,000 creative professionals, to the community. Related educational events have already begun. Public television station WDSE-WRPT Channel 8 held the first such event in August. St. Scholastica will host Catalyst’s lecture series in 2020.
Previously known as Independent TV Festival, the Catalyst Content Festival showcases independently produced TV shows and podcasts to industry executives, agents, and producers. The event brings together a worldwide community of creators, executives, agents and fans who will discover the best new programming created on independent (non-network) budgets. Catalyst is an open public festival, not just for entertainment industry professionals. Attendees include patrons of the arts, the general public, first-time creators, major executives and Emmy winners.
